Welcome to Year 5!

Themes & Topics


We start the year by blasting off into the atmosphere to begin our space topic. We will engage with a variety of space themed texts both in Guided Reading and Literacy lessons.
Science features heavily within this topic: discovering how Ptolemy and Copernicus effected how we perceive the solar system, as well as the various phases of the moon. In History, we will learn about the Space Race between Russia and America, and in Geography we will investigate places chosen to be launch sites for famous missions into space. Our topic includes a trip to the Space Centre.
